Frequently Asked Questions

How much is Spectrum internet? And how fast is it?

Spectrum Internet® with speeds up to 300 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary) costs $49.99 per month for 12 months. Spectrum also offers two other plans, with the highest speeds reaching up to 1,000 Mbps for $89.99 per month for 12 months.

How do I change my Frontier Wi-Fi password?

To change your Frontier Wi-Fi password, look for your network name (SSID) and password on the back, side, or bottom of your Frontier router. Once you have that, follow these steps:

  1. Depending on which brand of router you have, you’ll have a special web address you can use to access your router’s settings. (To find this, just Google the brand of router plus “router login.” (For example, “arris router login” would be your search if you have an ARRIS router.)
  2. Enter the IP address for your router’s dashboard and go to the wireless/Wi-Fi setup section.
  3. Change your password and be sure to save it. This is also where you can change the name of your wireless network if you like.
How can I use the internet without a provider?

Go to a public library, Walmart, a coffee shop—there are plenty of places that provide free Wi-Fi access.

What internet service is in the Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) area?

AT&T, Frontier, and Optimum are the largest internet providers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Rise Broadband, EarthLink, Spectrum, and Windstream are also available in the area but are less widespread.

If you don’t have access to landline internet, Viasat and HughesNet are your two satellite internet options.

What is AT&T Fiber?

AT&T Fiber is fiber-optic internet that provides faster download and upload speeds than cable or DSL. While fiber internet availability is limited, you can find it in Dallas and Fort Worth. We suggest fiber for its symmetrical upload and download speeds.

What is the fastest internet provider in Dallas?

AT&T and EarthLink are the fastest internet providers in Dallas. In areas where fiber internet is available, you can get AT&T plans with speeds up to 2,000 Mbps and 5,000 Mbps. EarthLink (which uses AT&T’s network infrastructure) also has 2,000 Mbps and 5,000 Mbps speeds on fiber plans. Frontier is the third-fastest provider, with a fiber plan that peaks at 2,000 Mbps.

Dallas is home to internet providers that give you plans with 1,000 Mbps or 940 Mbps speeds—the main ones being Spectrum and Optimum. While that’s not the absolute fastest, it’s still very powerful and more cost-effective for most internet users.

What are the fiber internet providers in Dallas?

AT&T , EarthLink, Frontier, and Optimum all provide fiber internet in parts of Dallas. Fiber internet is less widely available compared to other internet types, so you may only find one or two of these providers in your neighborhood. But we recommend going for fiber internet if you can get it because it’s incredibly fast and cost-effective.

Fiber internet providers in Dallas

  • AT&T — fiber speeds up to 5,000 Mbps
  • EarthLink — fiber speeds up to 5,000 Mbps
  • Frontier — fiber speeds up to 2,000 Mbps
  • Optimum — fiber speeds up to 940 Mbps

Dallas residential internet coverage

Dallas, Fort Worth, and many of the area’s suburbs are covered by AT&T, Optimum, and Spectrum. But you may find you have a few more internet providers to choose from depending on which neighborhood or suburb you live in.

Fort Worth

(Arlington Heights, Crestwood, Linwood, Monticello, Ridgmar, and Westover Hills)

Along with AT&T and Spectrum, certain neighborhoods in Fort Worth can get their fill of all things internet with Windstream.

 

Dallas

(North Dallas and Northwest Dallas)

If you call North or Northwest Dallas home, you’ve got a choice between Windstream, AT&T, and Spectrum.

 

Dallas–Fort Worth Suburbs

(Allen, Denton, Frisco, Garland, Irving, Plano, and Richardson)

AT&T, Spectrum, and Frontier cover this region. However, Frontier doesn’t extend its service to downtown Dallas or Fort Worth.

 

Areas East of Dallas

AT&T, Frontier, and Optimum are available in Rockwall and Terrell.

AT&T is typically the lowest-priced option in this area. If you opt for its DSL plan, you can get speeds up to 100 Mbps, but we’d recommend fiber if you can get it—a speed of 300 Mbps will be perfect for a mid-sized household. Frontier gives you a two-year price guarantee, so if you plan on calling the great state of Texas home for a while, there’s no need to worry about price hikes.

 

Highest-rated internet service providers in Dallas

Of all the internet service providers (ISPs) available in the DFW area, EarthLink ranked highest for overall customer satisfaction in our customer satisfaction survey, and AT&T and Spectrum came in behind, ranking second and ninth respectively out of 12 providers. That’s great news for North Central Texans living in Dallas—the more solid internet provider choices you have to choose from in your area, the better.

We didn’t include smaller ISPs like Astound Broadband, Rise Broadband, or TierOne Networks in our survey. But local providers are often known for good customer service, so they’re still worth checking out if they’re available in your area.

Allan A | 05-16-2022

I have been a customer of spectrum before the days the days of Time Warner. You have perpetual raised my rate over the last 15 years with irregularity and a difference. Multiple times I have to asked for adjustments and consideration of my bill and have told take it or leave it. To give new clients ridiculous entry rates for 12 months and then double the rate is a bait and switch tactic. I will be canceling my service today taking equipment and returning it to your office and stream my television service for half of what you are charging along with my Internet service that I will go to AT&T for.

I have had the AT&T FIBER—INTERNET 500 plan for almost a year now and the vast majority of the time, I get less that 1% of the advertised speed. While running a speedtest, I get close to 5%. I understand that the advertisement is "up to", but I expect to get more than 1% on average, and the act of running a speedtest shouldn't make everything else run smoother.

Service tends to be spotty at best. I've had to upgrade my internet services because even if I've had the same devices connected for years, my service plan will just suddenly be no longer sufficient to serve them all. Waking up to no internet connection on a weekly or biweekly basis and having to contact support, outages that last hours and reconnect estimate times that continue to get pushed back make working from home very difficult and unreliable.
